2019 Synthetic Turf Field Construction

Location 
Osseo, MN
Category 
Earthwork
Completion Date 
October 2019

Four total synthetic turf fields were constructed for the Osseo School District.  Two of these fields are located at the Osseo High School, and two of the fields are located at the Park Center High School.  Each field consists of exporting on site materials to accommodate a 2'-4" section of sand and drainage rock below the turf.  Over 5,000 LF of draintile is installed within the sand and rock section of each field to ensure a dry playing surface.  Cast-in-place footings were installed for the southern field at the Park Center site, to secure a seasonal dome that will be erected during cold weather months to allow year round sporting events.  A minor challenge we encountered was discovering an old farm site while excavating in one of the field locations.  We were able to remediate the situation and complete the project on time.
